On it's way

Word is that my bike is still in shipment from importer to Dealer. Should be here any day. I get more and more anxious everyday waiting for it.

It's a fully setup FS400e for motard racing.

To add to the anticipation:

The bike has made it to the dealer in idaho and will be picked up for shipment here tomorrow.

I should have it by thursday or friday.

updated, again

I've gotten firm word that the bike will here for sure on friday.

It has been picked up from dealer and is on a roadway truck somewhere between Idaho and Seattle.

In other news, last saturday was my 1st ever flat track race. Came in 3rd (missed 2nd by less than a foot on the 100) in both heats.

I DNF'd the main on the 100 (intake valve adjuster backed out)

The bikes I was racing:

Xr 100 (against CR 250, KX 250 and WR 426).
79 XT 500(or XL I can't remember--either way it was borrowed) against CRF 450, YZ426, 2 other flat trackers. I came in 4th ,out of 5, in the main.

I'm thinking the 'berg with the motard setup is gonna be a good setup on this track. It's an indoor dirt short track in monroe,wa.
